, people of the big banks were summoned to the meeting at a federal reserve bank here in new york and cnbc's bertha coombs has details for us. >> investors who buy u.s. treasuries buy them through banks, and this morning the treasury asked those bankers and dealers who help to sell the treasuries to investors to come in and talk about the situation as the debt ceiling limit looms. it was a regularly scheduled meeting, because on wednesday is normally the day that the treasury would announce the next action of debt, but obviously, that comes after the deadline. from bankers we talked to and senior treasury officials, they didn't really outline any contingency plans about what would happen if the debt ceiling deadline is not extended. a number of bankers have told me they anticipate what would happen is that those debt auctions would likely be postponed. we saw it happen back in 1995 when the government was shutdown. it was postponed for several weeks in terms of the auction, because essentially, if the government doesn't have the authority to increase that, then the treasury can't issue mor

way to do this, traditional way to do this to where we are now which is how big a deficit reduction package should accompany it. >> well, i think as the speaker of the house is discovering tonight, it is the reality we all live with here in washington, lawrence, which is this is a divided government, a two-party system. nobody gets entirely what he or she wants, and yes, if we had been doing this in the normal way as has been historically done, there would have been a clean debt ceiling vote, which has traditionally been unpleasant vote often for members of congress, but routine, noncontroversial, and certainly not tied to any deficit reduction package or any other measure for that matter. what happens is the speaker of the house made clear and republicans in general that they were linking the willingness to raise the debt ceiling to significant deficit reduction. as you know for a long time, we rejected the link, but because we believe we need to reduce our deficit and get our debt under control. we also worked concurrently as we moved through the spring and into the summer on prop
